Friday Midweek Update. 'Elvis The King' still No.1. No singles news at present but I will update this posting when known.
The Official Charts Results for this week (26.08.07).
'Elvis The King' - No.2
'Suspicious Minds' - No.13
'My Baby Left Me' - No.19
'Suspicious Minds' - No.26.
Will be very interesting to see the difference in sales for 'Elvis The King' and the No.2 album by Newton Faulkner. The major supermarkets had sold out of the Elvis album by Thursday/Friday but there were plenty of the Faulkner one. I suspect the Saturday sales clinched it for Faulkner.
Can you believe it!!! When the Radio 1 DJ announced 'My Baby Left Me' he played 'Heartbreak Hotel' by mistake. I suspect he has never heard MBLM before!!! You just can't get the staff!!!
